Plant Identification?

Hi. My local fish store generously gave me 2 plants for free but I have no idea what they are. I was wondering if anyone knew what they were and how to care for them. The first one has green leaves with reddish bottoms and I think the other one might be baby tears. Thank you for your help! Sorry about the crummy cell phone pics.

The first two photos look like Ludwigia repens. The second seems to be a Marselia of some kind.

x2 on the above. It's really hard to tell which Marsilea with the blurry picture but, it doesn't matter too much, requirements are about the same.
